The Sleepers of Erin This was the first Lovejoy mystery I have read I was put off by the character of Lovejoy I don t like the way he treats women, and he is unreasonably violent However, the story itself was good and kept me interested, and it had some good twists, which I always like The information about antiques, real and faked, was interesting, too. I enjoyed watching the Lovejoy TV series way back when, so I was familiar with him and Tinker, but have not read any of the books until now I have to say I preferred the TV Lovejoy to the book one, perhaps Ian McShane made himof a lovable scamp, but it s thanks to Lovejoy that I developed an interest in antiques generally As a tale it s OK, not the most exciting of stories and with some pretty unlikeable characters along the way I m not sure it ll encourage me to read any others in the I enjoyed watching the Lovejoy TV series way back when, so I was familiar with him and Tinker, but have not read any of the books until now I have to say I preferred the TV Lovejoy to the book one, perhaps Ian McShane made himof a lovable scamp, but it s thanks to Lovejoy that I developed an interest in antiques generally As a tale it s OK, not the most exciting of stories and with some pretty unlikeable characters along the way I m not sure it ll encourage me to read any others in the series though There is Lovejoy minding his own business enjoying post coital bliss late at night in a church when some collegues in the trade attempt to rob the church of its valuables When Lovejoy attempts to stop the robbery he ends up in hospital and being a suspect of the robbery, since the real robbers were friendly enough to leave one damning piece of evidence behind in his cottage of course the cheapest piece of the stolen goods Whne Lovejoy gets released from hospital he gets an alibi from an un There is Lovejoy minding his own business enjoying post coital bliss late at night in a church when some collegues in the trade attempt to rob the church of its valuables When Lovejoy attempts to stop the robbery he ends up in hospital and being a suspect of the robbery, since the real robbers were friendly enough to leave one damning piece of evidence behind in his cottage of course the cheapest piece of the stolen goods Whne Lovejoy gets released from hospital he gets an alibi from an unexpected but unknown lady The price of course his talents as a divvie Which means in thr antiques trade his skill of being able to feel a true antique This is just the start of a new adventure of Lovejoy.I generally enjoy the Lovejoy books even if they do containviolence than the very tv series with Ian Mcshane playing Lovejoy But in both perons he is a charming rogue that gets into a lot of trouble.well and intelligently written with the odd explanation about the world of antics thrown in for information This Lovejoy mystery follows the same formula in a previous entry, The Vatican Rip, in that some unsavory people convince Lovejoy to help them out with acquiring an antique This one also takes place in a different place other than England, though I didn t get as strong a sense of place as I did from Vatican.As much as I enjoy these stories, I find that Lovejoy has not changed a bit and still treats woman the same as he did in the first book, is oblivious to anything being his fault and always This Lovejoy mystery follows the same formula in a previous entry, The Vatican Rip, in that some unsavory people convince Lovejoy to help them out with acquiring an antique This one also takes place in a different place other than England, though I didn t get as strong a sense of place as I did from Vatican.As much as I enjoy these stories, I find that Lovejoy has not changed a bit and still treats woman the same as he did in the first book, is oblivious to anything being his fault and always thinks he is set up, though usually he brings that one on one way or another himself Still, his love of antiques and the telling of stories behind some of these wonders is interesting reading not impressed confusing. Antique dealer Lovejoy finds himself at the centre of another scam when he is taken to Ireland to find and authenticate a number of fake gold torques The book cleverly weaves it s when through the two interested parties an Eastern European gang and some local Irish friends hoping to come out on top Jonathan Gash has a well worked out and an established format with our hero only just on the side of the good but mostly out for himself. I enjoy both the Lovejoy TV series and the books, though they have a surprisingly different feel to them The books are quite a bit grittier TV Lovejoy is the proverbial scamp with a heart of gold The book Lovejoy is too in a way, but seems to be much seedier and harder to find the heart of gold underneath. Per the cover blurb it s a Lovejoy Novel of Suspense Lovejoy is an antique dealer who gets himself mixed up in some kinda shenanigans He s not the sharpest bulb in the shed, but he figures it out Except he doesn t Then he does Maybe Very funny at times, I d like to readof these Lovejoy novels of suspense.
